CEOs across the Triangle unite to build Habitat homes

Shelby Chandler | April 29, 2024

This past weekend, CEOs and top executives from across the Triangle joined forces to build three Habitat homes for partner families in Durham, Orange and Wake counties! The 2024 CEO Build, hosted in Habitat Orange's Weavers Grove neighborhood in Chapel Hill, marked a triumphant return after its last event in 2019.

The partnership began in 2012, after recognizing that many CEOs in the area live and work in different counties and wanted to participate in an event to make a collective impact. By bringing together all three Triangle-area affiliates, our participants not only support three future homeowners but also connect with other leaders in the Triangle.

By taking part in the CEO Build, sponsors receive media recognition for their leadership and investment in the community, participate in cross-industry networking opportunities, strengthen corporate relationships outside of the workplace and encourage a corporate environment of giving.

CEO Build isn't just about constructing homes with local executives; it's about creating lasting impacts and fostering a sense of community and compassion. This event is an ongoing commitment of Triangle leaders to make a meaningful difference in the lives of local families.

We want to extend a huge thank you to all the sponsors and participants who made this event not only possible but a tremendous success! Your dedication and generosity have helped create hope, stability and a brighter future for our partner families, showcasing the power of collaboration and compassion. Thank you for coming together to build homes, communities and hope in the Triangle!

Join us next year as Habitat Wake hosts CEO Build in 2025!
